Saxon + Parole, conceived by the award-winning AvroKO Hospitality Group and Executive Chef Brad Farmerie, creators of NoLIta's PUBLIC, brings a global approach to traditional grill fare, within a warm and inviting space on the Bowery. The 112-seat restaurant – named after two prize-winning, New York-bred racehorses – features rich design elements and modernist details, paying homage to the numerous horse stables that once populated Lower Manhattan. The menu explores traditional grill fare, with a focus on domestic meat and seafood, as well as seasonal and sustainable produce. Diners can expect a global twist in the seasoning, cooking methods, and ingredients – highlighted in dishes such as 28-day dry-aged NY strip steak with bone-marrow béarnaise, grilled Berkshire pork chop with red wine poached pear, goat cheese polenta, and watercress, and Scottish salmon with wild mushroom, romanesco, baby carrots and Meyer lemon crème fraîche.

Fourth time here and it has never disappointed. The attention to detail is remarkable with everything they serve. Their bone in ribeye is up there with the top steakhouses. We will definitely be coming back here regularly.

Beautiful décor, very lively, good service and yes, noisy. The food was good, not great. I had a steak, good but could have been better quality. Also had the Brussel sprouts, the Shishido peppers. I would recommend the brussel sprouts, the Shishido peppers were ok. The drinks were very good and imaginative.

Amazing cocktail menu. Superb appetizers (hello, mushrooms and truffles!), but the entrees were just “good”. I had high expectation following the cocktails and shareable apps, but the pasta dish was a dud, the pork chop was near tasteless and the scallops were nothing special. The Impossible burger was a tasty surprise though.

Highly recommend for cocktails. Dinner is optional.

The waiter failed to inform us the beer he suggested had a very unusual taste. He did offer to provide us with another cocktail to replace the beer which was very nice. I ordered the duck and it came out completely raw. The restaurant is so dark I couldnt tell at first and ended up eating raw (not rare believe me) duck. My friend got tge chicken and it too was undercooked and had no taste.

After a great experience a while ago, this times brunch was not good at all.
We did not get the food we ordered and the food was not fresh. The food had obviously been under a heat lamp for too long.
Too bad..

2nd time at S&P. Food wasn't as good as last time. I had the pork chop which was just ok, lacked a bit of flavor. For appetizers, we had the truffle burrata which was a bit overdone and we had to wait 5 minutes for them to get the actual truffles. The crudo was very good as well as the bone marrow.
The waitress was professional and overall, was a good experience.

Unfortunately what was once our favorite restaurant for many years has deteriorated. The food was exceptional in the early years and then went through a phase where everything was sweet with honey glaze (including the burgers, brussel sprouts, etc.) to the point that we stopped going & took a break. Now we decided to go again for a special occasion, only to find that every dish we ordered had thick creamy cheeses (including blue cheese in the bone marrow sauce, on the steak, potato sides, even the corn side was baked in it). Nothing we ordered was fresh & light. Everything tasted of cheese. Also, for a restaurant of this caliber we'd expect them to be able to transfer the bar tab to the table, but had to wait a long time for (poor) bar service in order to pay. The two redeeming aspects were the exceptional service by our waitress and the steak itself was delicious. We will have to give it another break, sadly.

Was lured here by a WSJ feature on Plant Protein and the ImpossibleBurger served here; our mixed 4-some of a vegan, vegetarian and 2 carnivores all found wonderful choices. Probably the best restaurant meal we’ve had in a while ... and we’ve had some good ones! Great excitement and positive vibes on a Thursday night in NYC Will surely return!
